rally in wisconsin romney is also in ohio today. in aetna and westchester both counties that voted republican the last three elections. you look at the president's campaign schedule and it makes the buckeye state look like an airline hub for airforce one with ohio stops every day through the election. colorado, swing through florida, got to change planes in ohio. mitt romney not only focused on ohio but is trying to broaden the battleground map. what is he up to here with this decision to campaign in pennsylvania on sunday? he's also got new hampshire on his list twice not once. the smallest swing state. they think it is edging their direction but more importantly for their math the 270 they don't get there with florida, virginia, ohio. they get there with florida, virginia, ohio, and one small state in this case new hampshire. meanwhile vice president joe biden makes two stops in wisconsin. congressman paul ryan begins his day in colorado before flying back to the midwest for a rally in cedar falls, iowa. then he joins romney in westchester in ohio tonight. then there's former pre
disagree with me, today's jobs report offered talking points to both. we heard mitt romney say and we heard it earlier, that the fact that it inched up to 7.9%, even though there were 171,000 net new jobs, that permits mitt romney to say there are more people, higher rate of unemployment than when barack obama took office. so, the president can say we've got another month of new hiring and net pluses, so it becomes a wash. anybody disagree with that? >> no. i think that's right. i would say look, the best -- we've known for months i think that the best case political scenario for barack obama when it comes to the economy is sort of a muddle. that the way he loses is if the unemployment rate remains high, jobs -- the jobs are not -- are 75,000, 80,000 jobs created no talking point where he can say it's not where we want it to be but i think it's getting better, so i think a muddle -- it's sort of the tie goes to the incumbent. in baseball, be it's muddled enough it winds up not helping mitt romney which means it helps barack obama a little bit. >> let me ask you, charlie, just switching gear
obama and governor romney both in ohio holding campaign events. we'll check in with our political panel and get a live report on the ground from the campaign following both the president and governor romney. the final four. it all certainly counts now. a? colin powell: yes. when he took over we were in one of the... worst recessions we had seen in recent times... close to a depression. and i saw, over the next several years, stabilization... come back in the financial community. housing is starting to pick up. the president saved the auto industry. and the actions he's taken with respect to... protecting us from terrorism have been very, very solid. and so, i think we ought to keep on the track that we are on. president obama: i'm barack obama and... i approve this message. then you may be looking for help in choosing the right plan for your needs. so don't wait. call now. whatever your health coverage needs, unitedhealthcare can help you find the right plan. open enrollment to choose your medicare coverage begins october 15th and ends december 7th. so now is the best time to review you
are going to have both romney and rhein in separate occasions in pennsylvania this weekend, suggest that they take this seriously. you don't go to a state and two days before an election unless you think there's potential. >> paul: let's take a president obama ad attacking mitt romney in ohio. >> it's said that character is what we do when we think no one is looking. >> mitt romney thought no one was looking when he attacked 47% of americans, his company shipped jobs overseas, his plan cuts millionaires taxes, but raises yours. he'll voucherize medicare and make catastrophic cuts to education. so remember what romney said and what his name would do. >> paul: taking our name in vein, the 15th time, the wall street journal does not agree with any of the-- >> what do you think? >> this is a-- this is a distilled message (laughter) of the campaign. >> he keeps returning to this class warfare theme and this is in ohio and thinks the outsourcing, hitting the rich. 47% plays well with less educated white men in the midwest and where he's focusing ads. >> paul: is that really a good closing
faulkner. months of back-breaking campaigning by governor mitt romney and president obama. whopping eight events by both men in one day. at one point they were in debuke, iwampt we'll check in on team obama in a moment and begin with governor romney stopping in new hampshire and iowa. and at this hour colorado to make sure supporters are fired up. the choice between the last four years and a different path. >> the same path means 20 trillion in debt and crippling unemployment and stagnant wage growth. we have to change course because unless we do we'll look at another recession. do you want more of the same or real change? >> chief political corpondant carl cameron on the move with the romney campaign. he used the president's own rhetoric against him. that's right, harris, since yesterday when he had 20,000 people or more in a major rally in ohio, mr. romney is using president obama's own rhetoric about voting against him. the president suggested that his supporters should vote for revenge mitt romney in colcalifornia spring and dubuque threw that back at the president. >> today president
for the news. president obama and governor romney hard at work. both men trying to lay claim to the swing state that will decide the winner. that is 72 hours from now. we'll see the polls close. we are entering those hours now for his own take is anchor of special report bret baier. >> we are all working together as we move ahead for tuesday. >> hard to believe that we are finally here. >> we don't see surprises coming from the president and the stump speeches. but something from president obama is really getting a lot of reaction in the last 24 hours . people are wondering if it was written or ad-lib. >> at the time the republican congress and senate candidate by the name of romney. no, no. no. don't boo, vote. vote. vote is the best revenge. >> the president said something you may have heard by now that surprised a lot of people. voting is the best revenge. he told supporters voting for revenge. vote for revenge? let me actul what i would like to tell you. vote for love of country. >> and now obviously you are already seeing response from governor romney. he responded again. what did the pres
heard again from the campaigns, jim mess siena and david axelrod, e-mails from the romney campaign, both sides accusing each other of bluffing by -- >> on the state of the race. >> on the state of the race, the ground game, who has the best get out the vote. $2 million by restore our future the super pac for romney into pennsylvania. this is more than -- this is more than a bluff. this sounds real, $2 million is real money. >> here's what's going on here, andrea, i think we have very real evidence of this. is in the nine battleground states, the ability of either candidate to move the numbers has been nearly impossible when either one of them has had some momentum, it's maybe moved their number a point or two, but -- and moved the other guy's number down a point or two but not much. we are seeing almost all of the battlegrounds at some form of a standstill, maybe moving half a point here, half a point there. where you see evidence of romney's uptick in the national polls playing out in the states or in the nonbattleground states, the ones that have been left off, pennsylvania is a classi
with the biggest whopper of this campaign. i mean we've seen a lot of big lies coming from the romney campaign. i mean on a lot of different topics right? particularly mitt romney trying to have it both ways or three ways on almost every issue. you never know where he really stands on any issue. the biggest lie of all is this lie in the last couple of days, mitt romney is trying to sell the people of ohio -- it doesn't look like they're buying it. the latest poll shows president obama up five still in ohio. but we know what's going on, right? no doubt about it. president obama is winning ohio. largely because he saved the auto industry and so many -- tens of thousands of jobs in ohio depend on the auto industry. so many families from the auxiliary businesses. in fact, the unemployment rate in ohio is lower than it is nationwide because the auto industry is back. thanks to president obama. g.m. is back making better cars than ever before. chrysler reported an 80% increase in their number in the third quarter of this
. governor romney preparing to hit the battleground state of ohio. both campaigns going full throttle in the final stretch, crisscrossing a number of key swing states. sometimes landing at airport when the other guy is taking off. john roberts is live in ohio where the governor will attend a ral later this afternoon. little me more about romney's message in the final days. john, good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you, bill. the battle in ohio is all about jobs. president obama going after the romney ad, recent one on auto bail yet which the chrysler selling jeep to the italians who want to start producing jeep ins china. obama administration saying absolutely not true they're shipping jobs overseas. the romney campaign saying it is true they want to start producing jeeps in china and every job created in china is not a job created here in the united states. so the campaign trail governor romney will continue to pure the message of change versus the status quo, saying under his administration real change starts on day one and mocking the president for wanting to create jobs by
. romney turned a previously scheduled political rally in ohio in to a relief effort. both candidates are trying to stay visible and yet appropriate with seven days to go in the campaign. what does this all do to the race? we look at what is done to help the victims of the monster storm. national guard and red cross are out in force. "special report" starts at 6:00 eastern. now back to new york with my colleagues at "the five." ♪ ♪ >> kimberly: september, the consulate was under siege and tyrone woods ignored orders to go in for help and he was killed hours later. his father spoke to sean hannity last night about how the white house handled the situation. >> obviously, people in the white house were watching watched this happen. their cries for help. the order don't help them at all, let them die. whoever that might be. you have blood of my son on your hands. i still forgive you. you need to stand up. >> eric: in an interview, president obama addressed allegations that the administration has been misleading the american people. >> i take offense that in any way we haven't tried to
is going from both campaigns, does it mean they're more up for grabs? >> bob: romney spread out the electoral map no question about it. if obama were to lose minnesota, it would be a landslide for romney. they have to send him in to shore things up. he will get to colorado where he needs to be. what romney, though, is missing here is a lot of campaign events in ohio, which he desperately needs. >> dana: that's where he was today. >> bob: but he was doing fundraising there. which is fine. but he needs to do the rallies and other things. anytime you freeze something, it doesn't actually mean you come back to where it was when you froze it. >> eric: no, but it doesn't mean the momentum changes back. face it, president obama has had the best success at changing the polling. when he goes negative. when his negative ads about romney for bain capital. >> kimberly: that's when he was ahead. >> eric: he was a murderer. that's when he gets movem. he can't do that now. you have can't go negative now. >> bob: are you suggesting that romney hasn't attacked obama negatively? one thing we shou
. no motorcades there, folks. that means both romney, who is in ohio and iowa today, and the president will probably end up spending more of their time in the midwest than they had planned with possible stops in colorado and florida. second, barring problems with federal disaster response, the president is likely to have a messaging advantage, if you will, as he gets to run are the government. he does run the government. he is the president. he simply has to do his job. by comparison in the next four days, hurricane sandy will replace mitt romney, does he have momentum or not story as the lead of nearly every swing state newspaper and newscast. the lead story will not be something that goes along like today, romney took his message of change to fill in the blank. and finally, the storm could put a premium on mechanics. and while the romney campaign is certainly a lot better than john mccain's 2008 operation, the more this race focuses on mechanics, the better it is probably for the obama campaign. asked whether the storm could affect early voting, the president said that remains to be
has done to the campaign. both president obama and mitt romney altering their campaign schedules, of course. but there are two different positions. how does this play out? >> great coverage this morning. and i have to pause and say it's sobering to see the pictures, to think about all the people with kids who can't get to a shift they may need. and it's hard to talk clinically about the politics, but go ahead and put on the stethoscope here. and point out that the campaigns are not suspended, the campaigns have been going on, they're just having to be very ginger about how they navigate it. at the same time president obama yesterday was sending out an appeal to his campaign list for red cross donations, his campaign aides were on a conference call talking about how they're about to go up in ohio with an ad hammering romney. they also announce there as you were talking about they're going up in pennsylvania. the president has that automatic stage. we saw him acting there as commander in chief. mitt romney has to avoid looking like he's going for photo ops. looking like he's doing
. you were to be out campaigning on behalf of the romney ryan ticket. both the presidential contenders have agreed to cancel events in virginia so you can move forward with storm plans. i want to look at polls at how tight it is in the commonwealth. our latest poll has the romney ryan ticket up by two points. there is a new poll out from the washington post which gives the president a four-point advantage in virginia. ultimately boil it down to the average it is a tee right now, 47.8% for each ticket. how does the romney camp close strong and bring home the commonwealth for republicans? >> i do appreciate governor roesterday and checking on the weather situation and agreeing to cancel three events today. the president tomorrow as well. i think it is probably a dead heat but momentum clearly moving towards governor romney and it is because the issues really matter to virginia voters are in romney's favor. the jobs picture. governor romney has a plan. the president presided over 43 months of 8% unemployment. the crushing debt that is going to get worse under the president. governor romne
campaign and the romney campaign. both have put a lot of bodies on the ground in these swing states. it is a really technologically sophisticated architecture for turning voters out. and one thing we're about to see is whose architecture is better. they have not led in an ohio poll in quite a while. they have not led in any of these nbc swing state polls, there are 32 of them according to twitter this morning. if their turnout model's better than obama's which seems unlikely from what i've heard, but if it is, that could change things. otherwise it's hard to see campaigning or another ad is going to do. people have heard it all by now. >> chuck, it's donny. obviously, we're all living through sandy. >> reporter: yes. >> you're in iowa or a wisconsin or an ohio swing voter, how does it play? >> reporter: you know, i think -- i'm guessing yesterday, seeing a roep aepublican and det working together. when you look at what i think has been a very effective closing message up until sandy happened, which was he was simply going to the -- wherever he was going, sometimes it was base counti
: clinton was in minnesota earlier in the week, where the romney campaign recently announced a new ad buy. it's a place both sides had earlier assumed would belong to the democrats. the obama camp countered with a new ad featuring the endorsement of former secretary of state colin powell, ran it there and in nine other states. >> i think we ought to keep on the track that we're on. >> i'm barack obama and i approve this message. >> woodruff: but the romney campaign also began airing a spanish-language ad in florida tying obama to latin american dictators hugo chavez and fidel castro. >> we are america's women. >> woodruff: and american future fund, a super pac supporting romney is running ads targeting women in michigan and pennsylvania, states considered safely democratic. as you can see on the "newshour's" vote 2012 map center" there are seven states currently considered by the associated press to be true toss ups: nevada, colorado, iowa, ohio, virginia, florida and new hampshire. it shows each candidate's quickest potential path to 270 electoral votes. including one scenario giving pre
to shave my mustache. >> there is evidence to back up both and the romney campaign believes momentum. our own history has shown candidates, there are challengers, and the whole thing happens and the whole thing won't move. is that what we're seeing or is this a desperate attempt to what's going on? >> chuck, look at the poll numbers. there is serious tightening in these states, the lean democratic column for quite a while right now. but it is important to note that president obama actually leads still in all of them and, in fact, the margins we're often seeing look close to what john kerry carried those states in 2004 versus 2008. but overall this is something -- this is the recognition the power the super pacs are playing. the pro-romney restore in play. other super pacs going in there and that's opened up things a little bit. the biggest question, why didn't we see these moves months ago? >> let me ask you something, are you concerned -- look, the fact of the matter is and i've done some of the math, it is possible and it's not like an out there scenario, that mitt romney could win the
for mitt romney to gain ohio? >> well, the independent votes are important to both camps, thomas. but i believe that the independents will swing the president's way. this is a choice election. a choice between a president who has been working very hard over the last four years to steady this economy or for a governor that will lie to try to get the presidency. i think independent voters understand what their choice is and that choice is president barack obama. >> ohio state senator nina turner. as always, lovely to see you. thanks for your time. >> you too, thomas. >>> six days to go and america's big decision is coming our way pretty quickly. a big question, though, looming, is pennsylvania in play. the keystone state. both the campaigns are blanketing the state with ads in an effort to grab its 20 electoral votes. many political experts say if mitt romney can flip ohio, the keystone state could be next. >> by the way, i like coal. people in the coal industry feel like it's getting crushed by your policies. i want to get america and north america energy independent so we can create tho

're both back at it. mitt romney, went into it and brought things back where they should be. they should be on the economy. we have that huge jobs number tomorrow morning. romney points out that he is all over the jobs, he is the one that creates jobs. obama went to a weird place. talking about green energy, i don't know where -- >> dana: we'll talk about that later. >> bob: can i point out -- >> dana: kimberly and greg haven't had a chance to talk. >> bob: sorry. >> dana: kimberly, karl's prediction was he believes that it will be 51-48 with romney winning, carrying at least 279 electoral college votes. your thoughts? >> kimberly: romney by 3%. i think he will go for it, he will win with 280 electoral votes. i believe he is going to take ohio by margin large enough to be contested in terms of the popular vote. he will take the electoral. >> dana: maybe in wisconsin. what do you think? >> greg: i predict a 90-43 obama victory. that's how well the obama campaign gets out the vote. there will be undocumented workers, space at it lens, local mannequins. the real winner is american people be
to -- iowa, wisconsin, north carolina, florida, eff last one of them battle ground states. romney has been campaigning in iowa, this weekend in virginia if the storm doesn't knock him off, in florida and wisconsin. this is what it's all boiled down to, molly. >> absolutely. you see them both doing this marathon campaigning now, this frenzy, going to three states a day, from stop to stop on the plane. you've got to imagine they're just exhausted but it's a very narrow group of states. they're really not venturing outside it. i don't think anyone thinks new states are going to come onto the board at this late stage. there was a little bit of chatter today about minnesota, both candidates putting a little bit of money into media markets in minute machine and the speculation is, is this just the ads that bleed into wisconsin? gwen: it's -- let's do a little three dimensional chat it. it's not just about the campaign, james, about leadership and trust. it's also about a more narrow specific. let's talk about the senate races. >> a lot of the senate battle ground is happening outside of the trad
, strategic, competitive, data-driven, they are both that. but romney has some of the other traits. he's very rank-oriented. if you read his book, "no apology," he wants america to be number one. he doesn't see a balance of power. he expresses less empathy, less empathy is linked with more testosterone, there's a lot of articles about that. so he seems the to express more of the testosterone in his system. as a matter of fact, his face is really quite high testosterone, the angular jaw, the heavy brow ridges, the high cheekbones are testosterone. so he's more testosterone. obama seems to be more expressive of the estrogen system, as well as testosterone. you know, there's a lot of football players, actually, who express a lot of estrogen as well as testosterone. and obama expresses a lot more of the estrogen. he's emotionally expressive, he sees the big picture, he's very contextual, holistic minded, got very good people skills, very good verbal skills, he's quite imaginative, these are all traits that are linked with the estrogen system. >> okay. >> you know, helen, i often think we spend to
act. travel both president today is new jersey governor chris christie, one of romneys staunchest supporters and there he was traveling with the president. >> i think this is our sixth conversation since the weekend and it has been a great working relationship. >> reporter: as president obama picks up points for his response to the storm, the romney campaign is attempting to expand the battleground, buying ads in michigan, minnesota and pennsylvania. >> we are on offense. >> the president's top advisors calling it foementum saying if romney were really competing in pennsylvania he would be in pennsylvania instead of florida. we asked san jose state political scientist melinda jackson to sort it out. >> i tend to trust the data and the polls are showing that obama seems to be gaining in the last few days down to the election. >> reporter: jackson says the romney campaign has money to spend and they hope to use it to create a storyline that will swing late deciders. >> if they can create an impression that their candidate does have momentum at the end of the race they are hoping tha
messages so far, both attacking governor romney. we'll debate what and who is behind these messages, right after this break. >> i have four generations of family on this earth and my life has been very blessed, and if the republicans steal this election i'm going to track down mitt romney and give him -- megyn: fox news alert on a little bit of good news for the more than 9 million people commuting in and out of new york city. the governor just announced there will be some limited service on the two commuter rail systems in and out much new york later today. but officials are estimating full service will not be fully restored for weeks if not months. and this could have a big impact even beyond the borders of the big apple. trace gallagher is live with the update. >> reporter: nobody knows which service will come online tomorrow or the day after. in the tristate area people use this every day. the transportation authority said of the 5,000 square miles they cover, not a single corner went untouched. 36 hours after the floodwaters came into the subway stations, the floodwaters remain. the e
votes out. >> i'm saying the results are, in both camp, obama is beating romney. >> chris: time out. two questions, karl and one, i want to talk about the disparity between the national polls which are leaning romney and the state polls that are leading obama and is it possible we're ready for another 2000, you could have romney win the popular vote in the case and, obama win the electoral vote. >> we could. and i think it is a small chance, because i think, brit is right when you have -- if the margin is as big nationally as it appears in these polls, then you will have the state polls -- we may have something else at play here, though, which is, we're endowing all of these polls with the precision they don't have. take ohio, there were 21 polls since the first debate. in 15 -- 16 of them, romney led among independence by an average of 13 points and obama led among independents by two and two polls, didn't break it out by republican, democrat or independent and it is hard to believe that if romney is leading among republicans by the margins that he is and leading among democrats by -- e
bureau chief susan page. maureen dowd writes this this morning, quote, while romney campaigns in florida yesterday, christie and obama plan to tour storm damage in new jersey. a picture of bipartisanship, putting distressed people above ki dirt-slinging politics and that's a grand bargain for both of them. susan, is this politically perhaps better than campaigning for the president? >> of course we're not saying that's the reason that this is happening with the president and governor christie, but i think it's probably good politics for both of them. it shows the president helping americans at a time in need. it shows the federal government doing something to help people. that's an argument that he's been trying to make with voters general low. and, you know, chris christie may well face a re-election fight next year for governor against newark mayor cory booker. it's probably helpful for governor christie as well. the only person it's not helpful for is maybe governor romney to have one of his chief surrogates out there touring today with the president. >> somebody we should remind peop
